    - From advisory:

    "KDE uses Ghostscript software for processing of PostScript (PS)
    and PDF files in a way that allows for the execution of arbitrary
    commands that can be contained in such files.

    An attacker can prepare a malicious PostScript or PDF file which will
    provide the attacker with access to the victim's account and privileges
    when the victim opens this malicious file for viewing or when the
    victim browses a directory containing such malicious file and has
    file previews enabled.

    An attacker can provide malicious files remotely to a victim in an
    e-mail, as part of a webpage, via an ftp server and possible other
    means."

    INFORMATION REGARDING OTHER ARCHITECTURES THAN X86

    kde-3.1.1a and kde-3.0.5b are currently only marked stable for x86.
    If you have succesfully compiled and merged 3.1.1a or 3.0.5a on any
    other architecture than x86 please report this to kde@gentoo.org.

    SOLUTION

    It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
    kde-base/kde upgrade to kde-3.1.1a or kde-3.0.5b as follows:

    emerge sync
    emerge kde OR \=kde-base/kde-3.0.5b
    emerge clean
